We received this update from A Partnership in Caring Volunteer Lynn MacDonald in Rwanda:
On our way back from Kampala, Uganda, we stopped off at Tubahumurize, a women’s cooperative to pick up our order of beautiful crafts. We were greeted by founder Jeanne Mwiriliza, who was kind enough to share with us information on this wonderful grass roots organization.
Tubahumurize serves socially and economically marginalized women living in Rwanda, regardless of their age, ethnicity, nationality, or religion.
In particular: genocide survivors; victims of gender-based violence and oppression; women living with HIV/AIDS and other critical illnesses; single mothers, grandmothers and orphan girls heading up households; and widows.
